Confidentiality was always an important part of the joint drug agreement, but enforcement hasn’t always been up to snuff.
We promised we’d make it up to you and we did. We have the usual great emails, and two weeks of prospect lists to catch up on, but the special guests are the highlights. First, we’re joined by both Jim Callis of Baseball America and Keith Law of ESPN to discuss the process of making a Top 100 (or 101) prospect list, as well as some differences we have and how the public reacts that lists. Then, in light of this week’s big news, Mark Fainaru-Wada joins me to talk about the process that went into breaking the Ryan Braun in December as well as the righteous indignation that has come with the reaction. Then it’s a bit of the goofy stuff and we’re all done. As always, we hope you enjoy.
